" will be speaking with john mccain and rahm emanuel. brought to you as a public service by the networks and c- span. you can listen to them all starting at noon eastern. you can listen to apps on your blackberry, android, or iphone or go to c-span.org. >> you are watching live one of 10,000 homes that they are trying to get done in the next four years. these are houses that are never coming back. >> one-family every 20 minutes is moving out. >> moving out of detroit. these houses are this a pouring from the landscape. >> 90,000 right now ready to go. >> 164 firefighters were laid off as part of the downsizing, as part of the effort for the mayor to get the finances under control. firefighters, which detroit needs because i think it must have the highest case of arson in the country, these guys are laid off. it bought two weeks later, 100 guys are rehired. you look to find out where the money came from, it is actually the department of homeland's security that has a fund for things like that. i do not want to overstate, but that is something you want to think about. the department of common security
that a return rate amongst absentee among republicans for john mccain. host: on the ballot issues and bloomberg insider rights this a -- guest: the civil union issue, i think that is accurate, by the way. i have not see the civil union issue pop up in to the contras as of the average voter. on the margins, -- into the consciousness of the average voter. on the margins, it may pop up. although, it would traditionally break into the democratic party since they have been the sponsor of this type of legislation in the legislature. the predominant issue around the country is the economy. host: the bloomberg insider also reports -- guest: can we do a better job, absolutely. and we must do a better job for one to remain a relevant party on the national scene, and particularly in the west. the latino vote, the hispanic vote as we like to call that in the west, it had shifted toward the republicans under president and former colorado gov. bill once actually won the hispanic vote here in 2002. it began to slip away. we had some issues with one of our congressman, congressman tom tancredo pushed away some
in the country to have voted for john carey in 2004 and john mccain in 2008, the only district that slipped from democratic to republican in between those two elections. was are the voters president wants, clinging to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october surprise in campaign 2012 and the history of it. this on twitter -- guest: she's probably right. many people aboard a voted. there is 1 weeks ago. the average american is paying attention to something other than politics, whether it's their own economic situation or recovering from storm damage in a swing state like virginia or new hampshire. -- many people have voted already. ballistics of trying to get around the place
, and understands that running is very hard on families. it is very tough. after the last campaign when john mccain won, made this recording for my husband. sweetie, i am never doing this again. he laughed. he said say that after every pregnancy. true, true, and yet i have five boys. i will tell you when the fifth boy -- those are the days when you never knew when you were having -- when he popped out, i said that ist and all i got. it was a long time waiting for the first granddaughter. i have five sons. you had a daughter. i have 18 grandchildren. guess how many are boys -- 13. i am surrounded. by the way i have all brothers. i had to learn how to play football and baseball, and play and roughhouse and everything else. life is interesting, and the boys taught me an amazing lessons, and i appreciate them so much. i could have nearly killed them when they were kids, but they taught me how to be open and how to be open with your feelings and how to express your feelings openly. i was shy. the thought that i am even up here on the stage with a microphone in my hand is wonderful. i spent my entire ele
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. -- voters in north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina. host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more
, just like john mccain. he made that exact same vote. we voted to make sure we did not go into a double-dip recession and lead the world into a global recession. i did not support sequestration. sequestration is based on the tea party premise that you do not raise revenues whatsoever. i believe we need to take a balanced approach. we are going to need to increase revenues, and we will need to cut agency budgets and stomach some cuts that many democrats are not going to be happy about. that is the only way we get to where we need to be on this. i think it is incumbent upon myself and everyone else in congress to get back to work after this election and come up with a solution that has both of those pieces. cuts and revenues, rather than embraces the tea party sequestration approach. >> do you believe it is possible to make medicare sustainable well into the future without converting it into a voucher system? would you ever support a voucher system? on it, it is there for them without any changes unless they want those kinds of changes. the congressman did not ask any seniors whether they
months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in trying to do this. >> president obama in wisconsin, jim mussina has shown us was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in the final days? >> i think what the president wants to do in the last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people of wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward, moving this economy forward -- >> why is the president spending his vital time there? >> we to want make sure we lock it in. we want to put the choice in front of the american people. mitt romney wants to take us back to an economy theory that got us into this mess, with tax cuts for the rich, that he hopes trickles down and helps the middle class. >> there's new information out this morning about the consulate attack in benghazi, about the cia's role, how long it took for them to respond. there seems to be this dribbling out of information from th
population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
with the "washington post" piece. republicans say that romney's team is far ahead of what senator john mccain had in place for years ago. but the extent of the organization and voter contact for the rahm the folks is miles ahead of where mccain was. there is no comparison. given there was a tough primary fight there for the republicans, that possibly they have a better ground game in place than the democrats. guest: that is not true. the democrats and president obama have been on the ground since the primary ended in february. the classic story was he drove through manchester and was locked, shut and the sides were down. the obama campaign was up and running. in knocking on doors, making phone calls. engaged in voter contacts for months and months before the obama campaign came back to new hampshire. i would say the republicans are talking of a good ground game, but the reality is the obama ground game is much better, and that will be a crucial factor when obama wins here next tuesday. host: given that obama won the state in 2008 by nine percentage points, and the economy is not that bad in new h
disappear. (crowd cheering) >> narrator: but 2008 was not hillary clinton's year or john mccain's. >> barack obama is projected to be the next president. >> senator barack obama of illinois will be the next president. >> barack obama will be the 44th president of the united states. >> barack obama, 47 years old, will become the president of the united states. >> that night when he came out, the look on his face to me looked like someone who finally understood the weight of the job that he had just won. >> narrator: but that night, obama must have believed the bipartisan change he had promised was now within sight. >> americans sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states. we are, and always will be, the united states of america. >> you have, in obama's case, gone within four years from being an illinois state politician to the most famous person on earth, and you have confidence in both your judgment about what's the right way to go and your ability to make it that way. >> america can change. our union can
miltown was upon us and john mccain was decided to suspend his campaign, his decision to do so came as a result of a meeting he had with his economic advisor team. all of these work big corporate donors. romney was among them. all of those guys basically said take it. take whatever bush is offering. this small town expand. the next day, and facts and romney went on the today show and said, yeah, i support it. that's one thing. he has not modified his support of tart. if they're is a president romney and if there continues difficulties with the banks, then under those circumstances, yes, there could be a recipe for more regulation. >> what impact, if any, do you think that the changes in california and their method for electing congressional representatives will have? >> are you referring to the redistricting? >> yes. democrat versus democrat, republican versus republican in their system of electing. >> if i am understanding your right, you are referring to -- now there was a kind of bipartisan commission that redesigned -- that did the redistricting. now, i actually did a story for
was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are not advertising in philadelphia. they don't want the obama campaign to janelle to their turnout machine and that machine is going to start getting engaged and that is what is going to drive president obama's margin in pennsylvania. will be the philadelphia county area in southeastern pennsylvania. >> we are talking about a surprise in 2012. last year on twitter michelle said this tired of october surprise at this point. game for the beltway pundit. the majority of citizens are made up already and they've already voted. >> she's probab
